Read many reviews before heading out to this restaurant this evening. The place was very busy which seemed like a good sign especially since it was a Monday night. The service was outstanding. There were 8 of us. We started with the onion rings and...More

A friend and I discovered Mandina’s by accident. We were riding the street car from the French Quarter to the botanical gardens and happened to notice how packed the parking around Mandina’s was. After a quick search on my phone, we decided to jump off...More

We tried the bar b q shrimp poboy. This isn’t the Kansas City bbq it is New Orleans bbq, a buttery salty Worcestershire sauce. Really great!! Paired with gumbo and my wife had the artichoke soup. We really enjoyed it!

If you're looking foroverpriced, worse than average cafeteria food, this place is for you!! Our local hostess recommended Mandina's, but it was a miserable failure! We ordered the calamari (absolutely flavorless, unquestionably without one drop of seasoning, not even the pinchiest pinch of salt); the...More
